NASHVILLE - Motor vehicle renewals due in March or April have been extended to June 15, 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Bill Lee extended the deadline for obtaining these renewals through  Executive Order No. 15.

“We appreciate our continued partnership with Tennessee’s 95 county clerks in administering vehicle title and registration across the state,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said. “We hope this extension of time will alleviate people’s concerns about renewing their registrations in the near term, so they can focus on their health and safety.”

To protect the health and safety of the public as well as county clerk staff amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the department strongly encourages motorists to renew online at If you do not have online access or your county does not have online renewals, you can find your local county clerk’s address on the website and mail in your renewal. Please also note that the Department of Environment and Conservation has suspended emission testing requirements through May 18, 2020, for the six Tennessee counties that still require the testing.  

The department is happy to help registrants if they have any questions about their vehicle registration, or any vehicle title and registration matter. Assistance is available through our Title and Registration Hotline at (615) 741-3101, via email at, or through our online Revenue Help application, where you can search for answers to your questions and also submit requests.
